Long Beach, Lowell, and Seattle are the three American cities with Cambodian US Consular Offices.
Why forget Philadelphia? I'm hearing lately that Philadelphia has the largest Cambodian population in America, even higher than Long Beach, since it seems like the Cambodians in Long Beach are moving to the suburbs while the Cambodians here in Philly are growing. Either way, it would be very interesting once the 2020 Census estimates starts to come later this year.
